Mumbai: Jet Airways (India) Ltd on Thursday said it has got into a code sharing agreement with Hong Kong Airlines. The partnership, it said, will help them significantly enhance connectivity between India and the Asia-Pacific region.

As part of the reciprocal agreement, Jet Airways will place its marketing code “9W" on Hong Kong Airlines’ flights operating between Hong Kong and Okinawa and Tokyo in Japan; Denpasar in Indonesia; Hanoi in Vietnam; Bangkok in Thailand; and Auckland in New Zealand. Hong Kong Airlines, in turn, will place its marketing code “HX" on Jet Airways’ flights between Hong Kong and Mumbai as well as Delhi in India

The code share flights will open for both sales as well as travel on 27 February, subject to government approval. Code sharing allows an airline to book its passengers on its partner carriers and provide seamless travel to destinations where it has no presence.

The agreement will allow Hong Kong Airlines, which flies to 36 cities across Asia Pacific, to offer its flyers a daily service connecting the key business cities of Hong Kong, Mumbai and Delhi. The code share will provide opportunities for both airlines to expand their reach and cater to guests across the region.
